Some of you have asked me to explain Bloom’s taxonomy, and I thought the best way to do this would be to show you some cool websites and have you explore them on your own before we can get into it further. Check these out and we can have a great discussion some time.
- Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy (click on the different links and explore)
- Lower and higher order thinking skills
- Higher Order Thinking
How far can learning take you? Have you ever had assignments that ask you to go to the top floor of the pyramid or do you oftentimes see yourself languishing in the lower depths of it? Do assignments you are given ask you to use higher order thinking skills or only lower order ones?
What is real learning and are you doing it right now?
